the story.

So Aaron and I were at Joann's a few days ago...I turned to look at something, as he was sitting in the cart seat...and suddenly he starts to squeal and laugh and giggle.  I turn around to see him holding and cuddling a bolt of super soft, cuddly and squishy minky.  I bought a yard because it made him so happy...if nothing else I thought I would make him a pillow.  
This one is for hoho.  It will be for his Easter basket.  And I LOVE it. 
It was so fun to make...and I had extra SO...of course I had to make more...right?
I made all sizes...and they are all wonky and wonderful.  A very loose pattern.
I call them...happy hoho monsters.  Because my hoho (aaron) is a happy little monster.
I am working on adding them to the shop today...the largest and smallest are spoken for but please ask me if you would like another...I would LOVE to make more and I would LOVE for them to be popular enough to keep in the shop. 
They are cuddly and sweet...and each on has a little pocket for holding treasures.  
I also think that they may stand as a good reminder that you don't have to be perfect to be lovable and wonderful. :)

So what do you think?  Are they lovely...or should I pretend like this post never happened?

Vanessa Washburn said...

I love these. I made my little girl something similar, but not nearly as cute. It's name is maggy monster. I might use your ideas for inspiration if I make more. These are great!

Katherine said...

LOVE! The pocket would be great for teeth for the tooth fairy ;-) Kids could put their tooth in and wake up in the morning with some $$ from the Tooth fairy!

Mimi-n-Moe's Mom said...

Those would be awesome for teeth too! The tooth fairy wouldn't have to dig around under the pillow! lol

Super cool toys.
